Your chance to shape the future of Great Yarmouth borough
Residents and business can have their say on the future shape of the borough of Great Yarmouth as part of a major new consultation.
Great Yarmouth Borough Council is starting work on preparing a new Local Plan, which will set out a strategy for the development up to 2041.
The plan will set out the amount of new development needed to ensure housing and commercial development needs are met, including where it should be and how it should be delivered. It will also set out the overall planning policies that will be used in determining future planning applications, so that new development is delivered in a sustainable way.
One of the first parts of producing the plan is to identify where development should go - and where it shouldn't, so important green spaces are protected into the future.
The council is now inviting individuals, landowners, developers, parish councils and others to suggest sites that may be suitable for development or that they think should be designated as protected 'local green spaces'.
Sites can be submitted to the Council using an interactive form and map on the Council's website and should be submitted by 5pm on the 8 July 2022.
All sites submitted will be subject to further public consultation as the plan is developed over the next few years, with the final document likely to come into force in 2025.
